Evan-Fischer is a rip off!

Crown has the windshield frames made in China and are a OEM gauge steel but have some minor flaws. And I believe the Omix-Ada frames are made by the same company that makes them for Sherman and Evan-Fischer.... somewhere in Taiwan.

Just last month I met Rommel Juan of MD Juan Company, who make the Repli-Tubs in the Philippines and many other Jeep related parts, at Quadratec. I gave him my original 84' CJ-7 windshield frame, that had a little rust but was still usable, so they could start duplicating them for us in exact OEM quality and fitment. We spent a few minutes going over the fine details of them and compared them to the ones made by Crown, that Quadratec had on hand, and then had the OEM windshield frame shipped back to the Philippines. They should start making them within a year or two. MD Juan currently makes CJ windshield frames but I have never seen one up close or know how the quality is either. Don't even know how you would be able to purchase one or who sells them.

By the way, Amazon sells that Evan-Fischer frame much cheaper than what you are getting it for: http://www.amazon.com/Evan-Fischer-E...f=pd_sxp_f_pt#
Well Keith, it's even worse than you thought! The Evan-Fischer is made in Taiwan just like Crown and is paper thin. It has the same extra bend on the bottom that must be cut off. I am very disappointed! I will never buy anything with Evan-Fischer on the label!

I just wanted to add a FYI so anyone reading this in the future.
Only use boiled linseed oil . Regular linseed oil won't dry, at least not in a good time frame.
Sorry about your windshield frame, that sucks!
